Welcome to Day 5, the FINAL day of discussions here at Armchair BEA 2014!

Did you get the opportunity to enter all the amazing giveaways that were linked up yesterday?!?  How about all those great conversations regarding diversity in books?  Has the latter inspired you to read something outside of your comfort zone, read about a country or culture different from your own, or simply educated you in an area that you were previously unaware?  We here at Armchair BEA hope that this week is not only providing you with lots of fun, but are also hoping for so much more, whether that may be in opening your eyes to something new, sharing resources, or helping you consider your next step in the blogosphere.

Today is our final day of discussion topics and we are leaving it open-ended for you to share something that you feel we have missed earlier in the week.  However, the week is really not yet coming to an end.  Be sure to keep checking back because we still have so much more for you coming LIVE from BEA and a few last minute, yet important items.  Stay tuned!

Daily Reminders:

Twitter Party TODAY at 9 PM EST

Instagram Challenge:  #WhatICanBuild

FRIDAY: TOPIC OF CHOICE & MIDDLE GRADE/YOUNG ADULT 

Topic of Choice 
Today is the day to talk about something that you feel we have missed or that you want to spend a little extra time chatting about. Ideas include, but are not limited to: a genre that does not fit into those featured earlier this week; logistics, such as blogging resources, procedures, or advice; or something completely fun with book to movie adaptations or favorite blogging games, features, memes, events, and/or activities. It’s your freebie day to choose what you like! 

Middle Grade/Young Adult 
Our final genre of discussion is one that we know is a popular one these days: books for the younger crowd, from middle grade to young adult. If you do not normally talk about this genre on your site, maybe you want to feature books that you remember impacting you during this stage in your life. If this is where you tend to gravitate, maybe you want to list your favorites, make recommendations based on genres, or feature some titles that you are excited to read coming later this year.

  21. I hope my post doesn't make me too unpopular in book blogging circles, but I was just so excited the Armchair BEA topic gave me a chance to write about the YA label (get rid!)

    1. I feel the same way as I wrote about Trilogies! (Get rid!) No, there is an INFLUX of NEW trilogies, and when you read the reviews, they state this book can be read as a stand alone as it has nothing to do with the other two books??? What??? So why not make the book a stand alone????? Are authors relying on using the word 'trilogy' to keep readers coming back, or are they in it for the money? Seriously. I go deeper in my post. I may not be so popular as well!

  22. All linked up. Wrote about lesser know authors (at least it seems to me) and lesser known YA /Middle School books.

  23. linked up! Thanks so much for a great week!

  24. I wrote about the experience of going through ArmchairBEA as a newbie blogger.

  25. Better WAY late than never!! I really wrote a dense article about the Trilogy. It seems as if there are so many now, and almost every NEW book I look at is part of a Trilogy. When I read the books can be read as a stand alone, HOW and WHY is it grouped into a Trilogy? You have to read the article!
    Thanks to #ArmchairBEA! I LOVED doing this! This was my first year, and I had no idea what I was getting into, but I LOVED it! Especially meeting new people on blogs that are new to me! Thanks for doing these link-ups as I have found new blogs to follow!
    Thank you!
